ELM GALLERY
Continuing Exhibit Legacy Art Exhibit of art by William Alan Youngblood (1915 - 2009)
This is an excellent chance to view the works of the late, beloved William Youngblood.

Raised in rural Tennessee during the Depression, he came from humble beginnings. In an interview late in life, he said, "My folks left nothing. What I'll leave are my paintings." His paintings, however, are quite special: visual poetry that offers calmness and peace.

These timeless paintings are musings on life and death and man's place in the universe. He used watercolors, acrylics and gouache to convey the peace of nature: fields and rivers, wildflowers, mountains and shores. He also sketched and painted the strivings of man and his activities which may temporarily prevail, but then slowly sink back into time: sagging buildings, old cars, rusted equipment.

The exhibit runs through September 27th.

MAIN GALLERY & FRABLE GALLERY
New Exhibit “Shells & Spheres”
In the Main Gallery, featured artists Rosemary McKnight and Stuart White offer an exhibit of watercolors and acrylic collages called “Shells & Spheres”. Beach-goers and shell collectors especially will enjoy the gentle colors of sunsets and sand in Ms. White’s softly glowing and fanciful paintings of shells, while even grown-ups will be fascinated by Ms. McKnight’s mesmerizing portraits of marbles, with all the shine, brilliance and bold, bright colors of the spheres she depicts.

Guest artists Marti Fann brings a new medium to the gallery with her abstract paintings in oil and cold wax, while Sally Kennedy’s stained glass lamps, boxes and hanging pieces add color and dimensionality to the exhibit and echo the brilliance of the marble paintings.
The exhibit runs through October 25th.

The opening reception will be Friday September 5, from 5 to 9 P.M.
Both exhibits run from September 4 through October 25, 2014.
